To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many calls were received by the immigration reporting line; how many prosecutions resulted; and what the cost was of the service during the last 12 months for which figures are available. [87996]

The trial of the confidential hotline ran from May to July 2002. A full evaluation of this trial has now taken place and following consultation recommendations are about to be put to Home Office Ministers. I am therefore unable to give further details at this time.

Once Ministers have had the opportunity to review the findings I will write again to the hon. Member.
